Farmville EMS raising money to replace deteriorating 40-year-old roof

Posted: Updated:
FARMVILLE, N.C. - Emergency crews are the first to respond when you need help. Now one eastern North Carolina Emergency Management Services department is asking for the public’s help to keep them safe.

The Farmville Rescue& EMS station is in need a new roof for its building on Belcher Street. The currently roof is the original one from the 1970’s when the building was first built. The 42-year-old roof is starting to show its age, especially during heavy storms. Assistant Chief of Farmville Rescue & EMS, Kyle Willis, says they constantly have to replace roof tiles and walls when the rain causes leaks. Willis says they also need to replace insulation in the roof that has been damaged due to leaks. Willis says they can no longer afford to just make quick fixes to the roof.

 It's gotten to the point now where we've been told that basically the roof needs replacing. Any repairs we do will just be money out of our budget and we'd be sitting here next year looking at the same discussion," said Willis.

The department’s has already raised $18,000 from their annual fundraiser. However, they are currently, $10,000 short based on current estimates.     

To make a donation contact the Farmville Rescue & EMS station at (252) 753-5611.
